Wanderlust

I am a 22 year old space and science enthusiast. Terrestrial tectonics, exoplanets, stars, interstellar voids, spacecraft, you name it. I love it.

The Painting that Inspired Sagan’s Cosmos
This painting, by artist Jon Lomberg, was the inspiration for Carl Sagan’s “spaceship of the imagination” in Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
It was designed to invoke the seeding of stars like the floating dandelion seed, and that shape became the craft that carried us through the greatest science film series ever made.
(via Symbiartic)

Cosmos is essentially the reason I’m now working towards a Physics MSci. My parents had the book and full box set and we’d watch it every weekend when I was around 12. Carl’s way of explaining science as if it were the most beautiful thing in the universe kind of stuck.
